An ardent builder and a true survival player, TheGriffinLord first joined MCO as GriffinLord12 after watching the April Fool's video that Fit made about the server. Unlike Fit's fanbase, however, Griffin is not a griefer and mostly kept to himself during the first few weeks after he joined. He eventually became more social in chat, made a few friends, created several builds, and had a couple of duels. As of writing this wiki, he has only joined one town because he is more of a lone wolf type and prefers independence. Griffin is generally a nice guy who would choose peace over warfare any day, but if you get on his bad side, you should probably not join MCO anytime soon. Early on during his time on MCO, he would randomly kill other players at spawn out of a sheer desire to cure his boredom and find something exciting to do, but has recently become more benevolent towards others and will only attack players if they are targeting innocent people. If you see him in Freedonia, he will most likely be collecting materials for a build, exploring new parts of the server, or asking people if they would donate their head to his collection.

Player Reactions TheGriffinLord waited until after he had logged 250 hours on MCO before actually registering. Because of this, other players had some profound, and hilarious, reactions to his white name.

  • The first build Griffin made was a cobble / stone brick house called Fort Halcyon which lies about 3k blocks east of Spawn. Some other builds which he made around it include a statue of himself (yes, he is very humble), the tallest melon tower on MCO, a treetop museum where he keeps part of his head collection and some other collectibles, a large Nether portal, and a few gravestones for the beloved mobs who died.
  • At the request of pretzel33, he built a Nether-themed axe at Sand Island which was christened Hades' Battleaxe.
  • For the 10th Anniversary build competition, he made a statue of a Steve Policeman, which was dedicated to the iconic mob of MCO.
  • Built a new home south of New Eden and close to Ravenscrest Village called Welkin Castle where he plans to live in the foreseeable future.
  • In the process of constructing a personal museum of all the most valuable items he's found on the server which only a few staff members have seen.
  • Built three pixel art feathers that were spread throughout Freedonia, and at each a special item was put there for the lucky player who found it. Two have already been found by FadedDucky and Aziroeth, but the last has yet to be discovered.
  • Has a small build in spawn, a temple-type structure that has a secret...

Battle of Welkin Castle

On the morning of January 20th, 2021, Griffin read in chat that jimmyd93 was inflicting some of the other players with infinite slowness, blindness and other bad effects. Although he wasn't exactly sure what would happen, Griffin told jimmy that he could tease him instead. A minute later, while at his base Welkin Castle, Griffin saw jimmy appear and immediately summon giants, ghasts, slimes and charged creepers. One of Griffin's iron golems began attacking the mobs, but died only a minute later. Griffin grabbed his best gear in order to defend his home, but suddenly had slowness, poison, and decay. Even after splashing himself with speed 2, he was rooted in place, unable to move. He pearled away from the giants into another spot of his castle but became trapped there by giants riding on top of wolves. He stood there for awhile, trying to keep the mobs at bay as jimmy watched in silence. But at last, he remembered he had a milk bucket in his enderchest, which sat right next to his /home point. So he got the milk and was back in action. Taking his god sword Moralltach, he quickly slew the giants, ghasts and charged creepers. But jimmy was still not done. He spawned in a giant slime which, as he put it, would follow Griffin forever until he was dead. Fortunately for Griffin, he finally had some help. A few of the dogs spawned in by jimmy had turned on him, and were now fighting against the mobs that he spawned to kill Griffin. Encouraged by the reinforcements, and armed to the teeth with potions, gapples and his god sword, Griffin attacked the slime. It was a long battle, lasting almost fifteen minutes, as with each death the slime would multiply into smaller entities. A few of the dogs died, heroically standing with their new master instead of jimmy. By this time, jimmy had decided to leave and spawn hostile mobs in DarthDan_42069's base, so it was just the slime. Eventually, the last tiny slime was slain, and Welkin Castle was freed.


Griffin was promoted to Moderator on February 6, 2021, along with his fellow players Leah_Starcraft, ServL, and yourshadowdr, all three of which he believes were deserving of the promotion. Unlike his new fellow moderators, Griffin had a bit of a heads up from staff that he was going to be promoted, but it still was a pleasant surprise when it happened.
